I copied all the links from the menus (sidebar and topbar) and got their monthly page view totals for February 2008, and then calculcated their average daily page views.
- Figures are rounded to nearest 100,000 if over 1M, nearest 1,000 if over 1,000, or not rounded if below 1,000
- Links with a red asterisk indicate links that appear twice – both in the sidebar and the topbar
Also, the top bar only appears on the main page, whereas the sidebar appears on every page.
Four repeated links may be overkill.
A more accurate way of understanding your user’s browsing behaviour would be analyzing your access logs.

@seele: well, yeah, but the access logs are not public data.
@tgr: Most visitors are anonymous readers, aren’t there?
* Special:Preferences – 206517 – ~7,000 per day
* Special:Watchlist – 3905653 – ~135,000 per day (probably many editors are like me and bookmark their watchlist, rather than the main page)
